Home Made Hydration Drinks

1L lemonade, 2 tbsp glucose powder, 1 heaped tsp salt.  Why the need for low calories?

Fructose in fruit juices can cause nausea.

Great report, Ian.  Sleep deprivation seems to be a major feature.  You mention the wind and snow but wasn't it pouring with rain most of the time?

I reckoned on Pavel Paloncy (race winner) being a compact small bloke, about 9st, but according to current Trail Running mag he's 6'5" and 14st! Not what I imagines at all.

There is hope for larger runners ...

Any Ultra Runners in Pembrokeshire or South Wales

What are those ???? for about the L100, jason?

I've done the L50, seren, which is reckoned to be the 'easier' half.

A very good idea to do the recces, especially the two (??!!?) night sections ...

Snowdonia Marathon 2015

Steve, there's a cut off at Snowdon Ranger Youth Hostel at 4 hours.  If you meet that I think you then have as long as you need to get to the finish. I may be wrong.  Ideally you'll want to finish before nightfall ...

Don't think Ian will be caught - he's too canny for that. #43 and 19 might have a race on.

True, true.  It's The Cheviots at night - not the local parkrun!

Ah, good. #44's set out.  Sometime tonight they will all finish.

A little bit of corner cutting going on again.

The Cross Fell rescue group are the three ahead of Ian so I would imagine they're moving well.

Chrissi - a number of  runners were instructed to miss out Dufton in order to avoid Cross Fell in bad weather, hence all those gaps.  

Javed is really struggling.  Ian might catch him before the end.
